EAT: Snack on Savory Babka at Meme’s Diner
Good drinks, good food, and good mood is the name of the game at this delightfully delicious diner. We recommend arriving early for brunch; its chili oil–splashed fried eggs and maple pecan sticky buns draw a considerable crowd. 657 Washington Avenue
DO: See Courageous Art at the Brooklyn Museum
Who says New York’s best cultural institutions are on Museum Mile? These halls have hosted the likes of Bowie, Kahlo, and Basquiat in the recent past, not to mention a slew of yoga classes, dance parties, and immersive movie screenings. 200 Eastern Parkway
DRINK: Vinyls and Booze at BierWax
IPAs and stouts are served with a side of disco and hip-hop deep cuts at this buzzing beer bar. The soundtrack rotates as regularly as the draft list—and with more than 5,000 records at their disposal, it’s a guarantee you’ll never hear the same song twice. 556 Vanderbilt Avenue
